 What I felt after watching Shamitabh


Shamitabh is a different kind of film and I am sure you will love it, R Balki direction is ok and there are some glitches in the screenplay, but overall film is good to watch.

Shamitabh shows the life of two people and clash of their egos. Both thinks ‘I am superior’. Amitabh is the real superstar in this film. He is just perfect with his acting and dialogue delivery. Dhanush is as good as always with his great expressions and acting.
I was missing Dhanush’s original voice in this film and I was feeling that Dhanush is not looking good with Amitabh’s voice, but everything looks fine till the end.

Story of Shamitabh

Story of Shamitabh is different, It’s a story of a Dumb boy (Dhanush as Daanish) who loves cinema and wants to be a film star. He comes to Mumbai to become a Bollywood superstar. After many failed attempt to meet with great directors of the Industry, he met Akshara Haasan(Akshara). She is an assistant director and they met with Amitabh Bachchan (Amitabh), who is a drunkard and lives in a cemetery. Amitabh has a powerful voice. So he lends his voice to Dhanush. Dhanush becomes a superstar with his acting and Amitabh’s voice. Then their ego creates many problems. The film is all about how they handle all these things.

Shamitabh Verdict

Shamitabh is a good film and getting positive  reviews from the critics. Baby is still in the theaters, but Shamitabh is a different film and audience will like it.

What’s Good- Amitabh Bachchan’s Performance and dialogue delivery, Dhanush’s Acting.

 What’s Bad- First half of the film was little dragged.

Should I watch Shamitabh?

Shamitabh is a different kind of film with a fresh script.
